Happy days, Photo Drive has been approved for the App Store and is available now.
Sadly I bungled the keywords meaning its nigh on impossible to find without a direct link and the only way to update the keywords is to upload a new version of the app.
Luckily I’ve got one primed and ready to go that contains a couple of bug fixes, a usability tweak (it remembers how you ordered your photo sets), and most importantly the ability to browse your contacts photos.
I uploaded it this morning and hopefully this too will be approved with no hiccups.
Features planned for upcoming versions include finding photos by tags (including exploring from the tag set of the current photo), finding photos geotagged near your current location and searching for people.
